Unorthodox follows the story of a young woman who tries to escape from her Orthodox community in Williamsburg, New York. The story follows her to Berlin, where her mother lives (who also fled the Orthodox community), and the adventure that she experiences as she wrestles to find her real place outside of the only place she’s ever lived. The Netflix miniseries is loosely based on the book Unorthodox: The Scandalous Rejection of My Hasidic Roots, an autobiography written by Deborah Feldman.
Each episode is only an hour long, and there are 4 of them, so it is a quick watch. However it already has high ratings, so I am excited to see it and tell you all what I think!
